Solid, Unspectacular Pro Day for Freeman

 

An estimated 15-20 teams attended Kansas State's Pro Day Thursday, mostly to see junior quarterback Josh Freeman. Detroit, St. Louis, Kansas City, Seattle, Oakland, Jacksonville, San Francisco, New York (Jets), Tampa Bay, and Minnesota were among the clubs there. Quarterback coaches for the Lions, Seahawks, Bucs, and Vikings were all present.

 Scouts who viewed Freeman's Pro Day workout today described it in much the same words as I described Freeman's Combine workout.

First, the two scouts' take on today's workout:

AFC Scout "He certainly can throw the ball. He's a little wild, but you knew that going in on film. He's got tools, though. Someone's gonna take him in the first and may end up with the best one of the bunch in a few years."

NFC Scout "Ok, not great workout. Big arm, but erratic. Great tools, but needs some refining."

My comments after scouting Freeman at the Combine:

Freeman has good arm strength, but his accuracy was inconsistent. On many of his shorter and intermediate routes, he often was a bit high or wide with his throws. All in all, it was a solid performance, but not the jaw-dropping one some had projected.
